Friday Finds

Here are the books that I found and added to my TBR list this week.

Sarah's Key by Tatiana de Rosnay (Can't remember where I found this one, someones blog...)
A look at France during the Nazi occupation in WWII.

Pemberley Shades by D.A. Bonavia-Hunt (Found via Austen Prose)
This was originally published in 1949 and is the second P&P sequel written. (You know, back in the day when people wrote sequels based on the book and not on Colin Firth jumping into a pond.)

Our Tempestuous Day by Carolly Erickson (Found via Jane Austen in Vermont)
I am really interested in learning more about the Regency Era and this looks like a good book to do just that.

Summer at Tiffany by Marjorie Hart (Found via 2 Kids and Tired Book Reviews)
This one just looks like a fun and interesting read.

Lark Rise to Candleford by Flora Thompson (Not sure where I found this one.)
The description of this book just makes me want to run out and find a copy of it right now. It sounds like just the type of book I would enjoy.

Deja Dead by Kathy Reichs (Found via Bloggin' 'bout Books. She reviewed a later book in the series, this one is the first in the series.)
I have not read many mysteries this year. When I finish (or catch up on) one of the current mystery series I am reading, I will have to look into this series.

The Great Influenza: The Epic Story of the Deadliest Plague by John M. Berry
(Found via surfing around Goodreads.)
I am interested in reading about the 1918 outbreak but I don't think I will care too much for the hype and doomsday bit about "the growing danger of the avian flu."

I'm waiting for 'Sarah's Key' to show up in the mail and I added 'Our Tempestuous Day: A History of Regency England' to my Amazon wishlist.

those first two look so interesting to me too! I'll have to add them to my list.

Sarah's Key sounds really good! I have Suite Francaise on my shelf--also about Nazi occupied France. By the way, in my google reader your pictures are beauitfully staggered--did you do something special to the formatting? I always have such a tough time formatting in blogger when I add pictures!!

Good finds! I want to read the first one!

Check out my finds!

Trish-The way they look staggered in the reader is pretty much how they looked in the compose mode. I just lined them up as close as I could so there would not be big gaps between the pictures like there normally is. I really have no idea what I am doing though, as can be evidenced in my last post. I completely messed up posting the pictures and it looks terrible but I am too tired to deal with it.

Trish said...

Haha--it looks great in this post anyway!!

I read "Deja Dead" this year, and it was really good! A little gory, but still very good. ;)

Sarah's Key sounds great. I love WWII books. Thanks for the recommendation!

Thanks for a great list. I have read some really great books recently recommended by bloggers.
